Stream Rugby Union Autumn Internationals

It’s that time of year again when southern hemisphere teams make the trip north to measure themselves against the European rugby powerhouses.

With teams already prepping for the 2023 Rugby World Cup, Autumn Internationals will be excellent testing grounds for new players and tactics to bring to the main event in France in two years’ time.

South Africa visits three of the four Home Nations coming off the back of a strong series win against the British and Irish Lions earlier this year. Having captured an impressive 18th Rugby Championship title in addition to the Bledisloe Cup against their traditional Australian rivals, the All Blacks close out an outstanding year with a tour of Cardiff, Rome, Dublin, and Paris. Expect a huge turnout for Australia’s visit to Twickenham, where the Wallabies hope to beat England for the first time since 2015.

But it’s not just about the big dogs. Constantly improving Japan takes on Scotland and Ireland, after beating both at home during the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Tonga plays Scotland and England, while Uruguay visits Italy after securing a World Cup spot by defeating the USA in the Americas playoff. And expect plenty of hard tackles when Georgia and France meet in Bordeaux on November 14.
